    Wait. This is going to be a cinema? Like — tickets and popcorn kinda thing?

  • siz

    finding it hard to believe this is ever gonna happen at this point, but…holding out hope. we all know how the permitting process is.

      And you have to take into consideration that it’s Mount Pleasant, where development of almost any kind has been constantly thwarted for decades. It’s a huge accomplishment to open anything new in that neighborhood, no matter what kind of business it happens to be.

      • Myron

        Yeah, all that “thwarted development” like Thai, Radius, Purple Patch, Each Peach, Subway, Habit, the new gym, etc…

        • Philippe Lecheval

          That’s a pretty small list, though. And at least a couple of those places replaced similar preexisting businesses. Maybe the “No Dancing” crowd has left the neighborhood, but it still doesn’t strike me as particularly friendly to new business.

        Phillipe I usually enjoy your comments as at best insightful or at least contrarian, but this one falls short on both counts. You’re dredging up umbrage from the year 2000.

        • siz

          yeah, what? lots of businesses have opened in mt p in the last several years.

  • Whitney

    Does anyone know what the hold up is/where they are in the permitting process? Last I heard they were talking with the neighbors that share the alley to (hopefully) minimize the impact on them.

  • Anonymous

    Wow. I’d forgotten about this place.

  • MTPeasant

    Have any kickstarter backers received updates? Was really excited for this a year ago, now i’m skeptical it will ever happen.

  • We on the Mount Pleasant ANC have heard little and done nothing concerning this venture. A group of residents did object to their liquor license application, but last I heard, that objection was denied. Ordinarily an applicant would come to the ANC for a “stipulated” license, but that hasn’t happened. I’m puzzled as to why this venture has not begun operations.
